Why Would You Block Someone?
Hi guys and girls. Today I will be covering the new generational trend….. BLOCKING. I noticed a lot of questions on social media asking why someone got blocked or if someone should block someone else. This is a fairly new trend and not many articles on it so hopefully this will offer some insight. After taking an anonymous survey I have put together a list of some reasons why it happens. Thanks to those who participated in my survey I really appreciate it. It's important to note that there are many more reasons why people will block you so if something got missed drop it into the comments. Why would you block someone? Let's get started
1. You're A Troll
A troll is someone who purposefully and intentionally causes chaos in an attempt to distract from their unfulfilled lives. They will say and do anything to get a reaction. This is the most blocked type of person.
2. You're Jealous/Envious
This type can not stand the fact that you have something they feel they deserve. That could be anything from followers, likes, popularity, shares, retweets, etc. You are everything they are not and seeing you everyday is a constant reminder of their shortcomings. Some signs to look out for are people who never give real feedback on posts (they don't want to contribute to your success but they want to know exactly what you do and when you do it and always finds ways to capture your attention). They will follow you like a hawk and stalk every post until they find something they think they can one up you at. If you don't know what a one upper is please review my previous mytake.
3. You're Annoying/Needy
You are for whatever reason annoying that person. Maybe you are tagging them too many times, liking everything they post (some people actually find this annoying!!! I was shocked), sending double texts before giving them a chance to read it, or you are just too time consuming to interact with. If you feel like you have done nothing wrong and the block was sudden, then these reasons could be why.
4. Your Thinking Is Distorted
Your views of yourself and the world are flawed and unrealistic. You can not intake new information and cannot see beyond your need to feel right. You think everything is a competition and will be quick to disagree or give advice just boost your ego. If you read my previous takes you will know all about how harmful distortions can be.
5. You Can't Handle Criticism
This type will block you as soon as you contradict them. They can not handle being critiqued or questioned for their thoughts and opinions. They believe that everyone should agree or get lost. For example, "Someone who just can't seem to disagree without insults or mockery"
6. You're A Toxic Person/Inappropriate
This type is not a troll but just someone who does and says inappropriate things that offend and trigger others. They will make hateful comments. This person typically does not realize that they are toxic. They will apologize and then continue to do the undesirable behavior.This person is always posting inappropriate content. So if you can't respect boundaries you will more than likely be blocked.
7. You Don't Bring Anything Valuable To That Person's Life Anymore
This type of person will block you as soon as you have served your purpose or if you serve no purpose at all. That purpose could be anything ranging from sex, money, attention, validation, etc. One person actually said he "blocked someone simply for not responding fast enough."
8. You Are Spamming
This type is a constant promoter. They will infiltrate any post, comment, article, video and use it as a platform to gain your attention and followers. They don't support you they are looking for an opportunity to get ahead.
9. Attention Seeking
This type is very common. They will post 100 selfies a day, post pictures asking "how do I look", ask if they are dateable or f***able, saying "I am horny and I don't know what to do", etc. This type is only concerned with getting a boost in self esteem and ego. This is a huge turn off for some people and will lead to them blocking you.
Whenever you post, they post. Whenever you comment, they comment. Whenever you disagree, they disagree. They will copy you and try to portray themselves as individuals. It's like the episode of SpongeBob where Patrick decides to copy everything SpongeBob did until he received an award. Even SpongeBob eventually couldn't take it and did whatever he could to get away from Patrick.
11. You Give Unsolicited And Unwarranted Advice
This type of person will leave comments and replies that are unwanted and often false information. They will be quick to try and discern why you do the things you do so they can find ways to use it to control your thoughts, opinions, and actions. The advice or suggestions are never accurate or helpful. If you are frequently commenting on posts not directed towards you then this is maybe why you are blocked.

12. You Broke Up
It doesn't matter who you broke up with family, friends, or romantic interests, once the break occurs blocking becomes a way of fighting and hurting the other. Maybe your ex got a new partner and you can't stand to see them happy with someone else. Maybe your friend betrayed your trust. Or maybe a family member took advantage of you. These are all common reasons why someone will block a person after the break up.
13. You're A Creep
We all know about the creeps and weirdos that will slip into your inbox and send d*** pictures, say sexually inappropriate things, send 20+ messages about how horny they are, or try to offer you money for sexual favors. If you're a creep then that is why you are blocked.
14. You Unfollowed Or Won't Follow Back
I saved the most childish way for last. You will notice people who will follow and beg for a follow back. If you do not honor this offer the punishment is a permanent block.
